And so it ends, our heroine finally knows peace.

It's been a hell of a ride and I loved every minute of it. It's been a huge pleasure revisiting these eps with you.

As for Gabby? Personally I think she adventured for a few more years then went back to Potidea to live with Sarah and Lila.
I agree with you on everything... (except who her father is! )

As much as various factions of the XWP fandom hate this ending, I really do see her "at peace" now which makes me happy... and its only the "end" for this karmic cycle. We know these two get together throughout history, which has proven MUCH fodder for the fanfiction writers.

Hurray FF writers!

And I agree with you on Gabrielle going back, eventually, to spend time with Lila and Sarah and become that famous Bard we know she should have been... before all her stories were burned in the ransacking of the Great Library of Alexandria.

Glad you enjoyed the revisit. Hell, I enjoyed the revisit when I finished the 134 eps in 4 weeks and realized I'd done it so fast that I MISSED so many themes.

And once again, I'd like to apologize to Rpb Tapert, Lucy Lawless, and Renee O'Connor for not even considering their show the first time around. What can I say?

Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa, Mea Maxima culpa.

Silly little things I remember after all these DVDs and commentaries...

After 6 years of acting opposite her, Lucy Lawless did not know what color Renee's eyes were...

... but her HUSBAND did! (Was that a director thing, he's used to lighting her or watching her in the dailies?)

That Rob Tapert, the horror movie producer was such a sentimental old sod, feeling "honored" to be able to direct the scene by the Fountain of Strength between Gabby and Xena.

That Renee was just as sentimental as Rob Tapert, when she seemed to relish the idea that he'd changed the ending of the finale so we never see Gabrielle without Xena, after they met again on the ship.

But even funnier, was that Renee... 3-4 months pregnant during this episode, had NO idea what would be happening to her just 5-6 months down the road.

(Boys... don't listen to this if you are the least bit squeemish. )

Re: Any Xena:WP fans on the boards?

I know it's sad but I kinda like the original ending where Gabby's alone on the boat, has more of a sense of truth to it

Re: Any Xena:WP fans on the boards?

^^I can see some sense in that... it is more real, but then again the reality is what Xena herself said...

“And to the place where I’ll always remain... your heart."

We incorporate the people, philosophies we follow inside ourselves and in that way we are "never" alone.
Liz Friedman, one of the producers/writers of the show said Hercules is the hero we all hope is "out there", somewhere.... whereas Xena is the hero we all hope is inside US... somewhere.

I like to think of Gabrielle as the Xena fandom... and as the series ends, we fans walk away with a little Xena in ourselves just as Gabrielle sails away with her in that wonderful heart.

Even Lucy lawless has spoken to this idea, when she was asked what she would do if she saw something unjust going on.

She said, if she saw someone abusing a child, she'd "...go from Zero to XENA in half a second!"

Imagine a world with 7 billion "redeemed" Xenas!
